Starting your first job out of college is a stressful and often daunting experience, one made even more so by COVID-related remote work. On this episode of HPS Insights, guest host and HPS associate Jack Eichner sits down with fellow associates Matisse Rogers and Will Newell to talk about how the workforce’s newest generation is handling office life, adjusting to new roles, and building relationships in the workplace.

They talk about the importance of asking for help, learning how to work with different types of people, and more.
